Are there any other populations who need more?
According to the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements, there are several groups that need to pay attention to getting plenty of B12: older adults, anyone with less stomach acid, and vegan and vegetarians who aren't necessarily consuming many animal products.
Can you get too much?
No—B12 has been shown to be safe even at higher doses. And because vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, if you ingest excess B12, your body simply does not absorb it.*
If B12 is found in animal foods, where does B12 for vegan supplements come from? How can it be called vegan?
Chemical synthesis is the major source of B12 in any form, and Ritual takes great care to source methylcobalamin under our Made Traceable standards—that is, with a philosophy to do right by our customers (vegan or not) and the planet. In other words, we obsess over the details so you don’t have to.*
